I'm wondering whether anyone might have access to old copies of the Cariboo Sentinel, which I understand might have covered Barkerville news. I'm looking for an obituary or news item regarding the following death:

Date: 1932 12 26 (Y/M/D) Age: 46 Gender: M
Reg. #: 1932-09-485793
BC Archives Microfilm #: B13149
GSU Microfilm #: 1953016

Thanks in advance!

P.S. I don't live in access to this information is a bit more difficult.

Doug, I lived in Wells, BC next door to Barkerville, and I recall that the Sentinel ceased publication in the 19th century, probably sometime in the 1880-90's. Visit the website of the new Cariboo Sentinel at, they should be able to confirm the publication dates.
